Being better

.I stumbled on you and have been devouring past episodes. Confession: I am not an MI practitioner, but surely an aficionado. From a learning and org development background and in healthcare, supporting patient experience, discovered MI later in my career. Your guests bring nuance and dimension and an almost every case make me think about application to the patients and customers we serve. And, of course, applications to home life! Thank you and your guests for the investment of time and talent - what a gift.

Thoughtful, informative, practical

Ever since I discovered this podcast last summer I have been smitten. The episodes cover diverse subject areas and feature renowned guests. Best of all, the hosts are themselves veteran clinicians who thoughtfully and artfully guide the conversation, modeling the same motivational interviewing techniques discussed in the episodes. I look forward to every new episode I have the fortune to hear.
